I don’t think you said anything wrong. As long as you keep those other thoughts to yourself I think what you said was nice.

You didn’t say anything to compare it to your ring, or even give away that you think it’s small.  I think what you said is perfect!

Based on what you wrote, you said all the right things.  I wouldn’t be offended.

From the title of your post, I really thought this was going to be bad. I think what you said was completely fine; I’m being honest! It was good that you didn’t comment on the stone if it was really tiny. Remember she’s not inside your head to know what you are thinking. Don’t worry! 🙂

i think what you said was fine. nbd…

you complimented her….its not like you took her ring and put yours next to it side by side.

Listen…we shouldnt be ashmaed of what we got, how we got it.

It’s our story, this is theirs…however they choose to live it…

Don’t sweat it!

If that’s actually what you said, then you didn’t say anything wrong!  What else could you say?

I agree that from what you said, you sounded genuinely happy for her and the ring:)

I don’t think you said anything wrong. Some people don’t care about the size of their diamonds. Mine is a little one that used to be an earring of my grandmothers. I love it more than any other big ring I’ve ever seen.

Your reply sounds fine to me.  As long as you weren’t comparing out loud you should have been good to go.

What you said was perfectly fine!  And keep in mind that she may have preferred/asked for a smaller ring – not everyone wants a carat!

You were fine =]. Maybe she asked for a smaller ring. Or maybe he has to help pay for the wedding…who knows!

@Neva:

You said nothing bad.  Presonally I love small stone rings, and hate big ones, so I donno why everyone is comparing sizes, who cares! how shallow.

It sounds like everything you said was just fine.  I didn’t see any rude comments what soever.  It may be that the FI prefers small rings?  Or, like you said, maybe just practical?
